His reasoning behind this was because bottling beer is a big pain in the ass (so he says, Ive never done it) and he just likes it from the tap more.
What do think about that...is bottling really that big of a pain and would the cost difference between bottling your beer versus getting a kegerator be that drastic.
Bottling isn't that big of a pain...kind of time consuming I guess, it takes around 1-2 hours with setup/cleanup and all. It's cool if you have a buddy to help out, just crack a couple brews, turn on some music or a movie, and go at it. It's a lot easier to share bottles than to have to have people come over to taste your kegged beer.
That being said though, I'd love to be able to have a kegerator with like 4 taps available at any given time. Also, with kegs, you force carbonate your beer, rather than having to let it carb in the bottle, so you can enjoy your brew that much more quickly.
